At Derma Bella Progressive Skin Care, aestheticians revitalize complexions with facials that use lemon ingredients to brighten sun-damaged skin or antioxidant-rich raspberries and peaches to restore a youthful appearance. Aestheticians also perform enzyme peels and ultrasonic microdermabrasion, in which an oscillating wand delivers Oxygen Botanicals products deep into skin to remove built-up residue and encourage cellular turnover. Microdermabrasion treatments are gentle, and usually involve no downtime or delay before clients can apply makeup again. Aestheticians also can wax away stray strands on the face before placing it behind glass inside a custom picture frame, where it will remain beautiful forever.
The stylists and aestheticians at Botanicals Salon & Spa believe that even with all the high-tech serums, lotions, and hair products that exist in the world, nature is the best for hair and skin. The Aveda concept salon eschews harsh chemicals and uses all-natural Aveda products during hair cuts and colors, facials, waxing services, and mani-pedis. To further support nature and make dolphins high-five each other with joy, clients can bring in their empty Aveda product bottles and have them refilled.
For aesthetician Rebecca Mai, fingernails are blank canvases on which to create intricate works of art. She hones her creative skills at Cassy's Nail Spa, calling upon the training she acquired while enrolled in the Creative Nail Design masters program, which yields a certificate that's signed in polish. After renovating cuticles and moisturizing skin, Rebecca often accentuates nails with hand-painted designs.
At Klassy Kuts Studio, the stylists do more than cut hair?they also add creative flair to hairs' hues, applying ombre color, shiny transparent glaze, and bright highlights. Before they tend to strands, sometimes coiling them into elaborate updos, stylists listen carefully as clients describe their desired looks and preferred hair-maintenance habits.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
